A Davie clinic owner bought a $3 million home, two Winnebagos and a yacht with the proceeds of a multimillion-dollar health insurance billing scheme, according to a federal grand jury indictment.

Bradley Jason Kantor, 49, who ran Mobile Diagnostic Imaging in Davie, faces four counts of health care fraud and a single count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud following the grand jury indictment in Miami, according to a news release by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of Florida.

The clinic purportedly provided antigen therapy and other allergen immunotherapy services, such as allergy testing and allergy shots, to members of United Healthcare’s insurance network.

Kantor paid kickbacks to co-conspirators who referred United Healthcare members to the clinic, so the clinic could bill the insurer for services that were never provided, the release said.

The indictment accuses Kantor of submitting about $42 million in fraudulent claims, and states that United Healthcare paid the clinic more than $12 million for services that members never received.

Kantor used his ill-gotten gains to purchase a $3 million home in the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, two Winnebago motor coaches and a 37-foot yacht. the release said.

The fraud occurred between April 2013 and March 2017, the indictment said.

Records in the state’s database of registered corporations shows that Kantor opened the business in 2004 using a residential address on North Pine Island Road in Plantation. In 2010, Kantor changed the address to a professional building on North University Drive in Fort Lauderdale, and by 2012 to a business center on Orange Drive in Davie.

Monroe County property records show that Bradley and his wife, Carrie, purchased the 4,153-square-foot home on Harbor Island Drive in Key Largo for $1.75 million in 2017. Its assessed market value in 2020 was $2 million, and it was listed for sale in January for $3 million.
